    I have been using a multi dvd image, but I only have a key for Home Premium. It is only in english in this version. Is there a way for installing another language after install?

    And thank you for the link I will see if this solves it

    I have been using a multi dvd image,
    If your installation DVD contains both x86 and x64 editions, it will throw error message if you try to boot in UEFI mode ( base boot image will be x86 ). Google "Digital River" download link for Home Basic 64 bit edition and use that for installation.

    I have used a 64bit image only. There is no doubt. It would seem that the particular ASUS K53SV has a problem with UEFI that several others have had and have not solved. I have given up and installed a clean win7 in Legacy. I have been seeking for hours, and I have tried Tianocore for UEFI as well, but I have decided it to be a waste of my time. Thank you for all your replies. I appreciate the help

    Are you sure? Maybe in different countries they are packaged differently, but my 8.1 retail set has 32 and 64 bit, not core and pro. The Core and Pro are sold in different colored boxes.

    My Windows 7 ones were the same. We also need to keep in mind the Original Windows 7 DVDs, non-SP1, do not work well as UEFI on the newer systems.

    The box may say Core or Pro but the DVD can install both. What's on the box is just telling you what version you paid for. It's telling you what product Code is inside the box. The Microsoft TechNet ISO's are multi edition, Core and Pro. The key you enter during the install determines what version you get. I am almost positive Retail DVD's are the same way. For example, if you install Core, and then enter a Pro key via Add Features, all the features of Pro are installed/unlocked without having to put your DVD in. All the Pro files are already installed, they just aren't unlocked.

    Forgot to mention, the Windows 7 DVD's also have all versions on them. If you delete the EI.cfg file from the sources folder you'll get a menu during install listing all the different version on the DVD. For the 32 bit DVD you'll get Starter right up to Ultimate. The 64 bit DVD does not contain Starter so it goes from I think Home Basic to Ultimate.

    I've never seen 32 bit and 64 bit Windows on the same DVD. Office maybe, but not Windows. Not from Microsoft anyway. There are some home made "All in ones" on bit torrent sites but like you say, from Microsoft its two separate ISO's. As far as I know Retail bought copies are the same deal, you get a 32 bit DVD and a 64 Bit DVD in the box. That's what I've seen mentioned on this forum.
